Examples of D. Marcus in ℝ2 dispel the belief that a probability measure on ℝd is stable if and only if all its univariate marginals are stable. However, in ℝd (in fact, in fairly general linear spaces), a probability measure whose two-dimensional marginals are all infinitely divisible is stable if and only if all its univariate marginals are stable.
